All clear Sentinel. Five Mutants released from their torment. The rest are keeping their heads down.

— Knight Captain Colvin

Knight Captain Colvin is a Brotherhood of Steel member inside the GNR building plaza in Fallout 3.

Background[edit | edit source]

A sniper in Lyons' Pride, Colvin is 40, friendly, and warm to everyone. To him, combat is like worship, and he treats his rifle as a holy object and his targets as the unfortunate victims of his god's wrath. He says a prayer for the soul of each mutant he kills. He's extremely experienced, and completely unflappable: all according to God's will.[1]

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Colvin is a member of the Lyons' Pride, which he considers his family.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Aside from his initial appearance outside GNR, he appears in no subsequent quests or side missions, even those involving other Pride members.
  • Of all the Lyons Pride members, Colvin is the nicest to the player character upon first meeting them.

Notable quotes[edit | edit source]

  • "All clear Sentinel. Five Mutants released from their torment. The rest are keeping their heads down."
  • "My Brothers may be gruff, but they will lay down their lives for you."
  • "This looks like the main force. Many tormented souls will meet the Maker today. I will pray for forgiveness."
  • "Let's see the Outcasts do that."

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Knight Captain Colvin is likely a reference to the character Private Daniel Jackson (played by Barry Pepper) in the movie Saving Private Ryan. Like Colvin, Jackson is an army marksman who says a prayer before taking each shot. Interestingly, Colvin's fellow Lyons' Pride member, Knight Captain Dusk, also references Jackson with her quote "Put any mutie bastard within one mile of me and my rifle and, well... pack it up troops. Fight's over."

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Colvin appears only in Fallout 3.
